Remote Controlled Docking

Dockmate is the most reliable and accurate wireless remote docking system for your boat, made by boaters for boaters. 

stress-free docking

Let’s address the elephant in the room: docking can be a hassle. When confronted with new challenges, we sometimes lack a bit of confidence. The weather might be rougher than we had anticipated, and while entering new harbours and docks our stress levels can increase a little bit. How to best approach the dock? From where are the wind and current coming? Should I dock stern or bow first? 
With the waters more crowded and the rise of affordable state-of-the-art technology, we believe now is the time to revolutionise the way we dock. At Dockmate®, we feel it is our mission to give captains the confidence they need to go and explore the world by setting the world free from docking stress.
